Very slow in paying subcontractors Just a hassle to do business with.
Very one sided contract and they request for bonding and personal guarantees. Contract provides too many opportunities for ESI to withhold subcon's payments and claim default. Example, withholding payment for failure to provide supplier lists.
Their payment process was somewhat convoluted, but we mostly got paid in a reasonable amount of time.
Unreasonable and Lawsuit Happy. We broke our back to only have rug pulled out underneath us at the end. We were distracted and challenged every step of the way. Not only were we not payed for contracted work 57 thousand dollars they then sued us and settled out of court for 15 grand for breach of contract When i feel they breached contract. Its been a battle every since stiffed by these guys to stay afloat.
they never paid me then sued me causing further damage nearly bankrupting my small business and destroyed my credit to stay alive. I would not work for this company ever again. Beware they are good at seeing fault in everything you do and breach contract and blame you for it..
Payment process was fast and easy. Never a problem.
Very slow pay and dispute the amounts of Change Orders when the estimate was approved. Suddenly the amount is different in GC Pay and the sub can't change it!
Excellent payer, no complaints at all, highly recommended when it comes to payment.
I would avoid this company at ALL costs! We worked with them a few years back. Payments were extremely delayed and they tried to renegotiate agreed upon extras, AFTER work was done. Their PM's and the whole company in general are totally one sided, with no regard for their subs. To further that thought, their contract comes with a 2 page personal guarantee, which we refused to sign. We've been in business 35+ years as a corporation and do NOT sign personal guarantees. Our crew overheard ESI people bragging that the company has acted on those personal guarantees and taken subs houses away on multiple occasions. HIGHLY recommend NOT working with this GC!
